with the titans from UNIPORT and UNILAG.The UNICAL auditions started on the 28th of August. Hundreds of people
trooped out to be auditioned. It was not an easy process indeed as
Calabar youths baffled the audience and even the judges with
unimaginable talents. At the end of the day, the Dare2Dream team paid a
courtesy visit to the former governor of Cross River state, Donald Duke.Day 2 saw the continuation of the auditions, as on this day, the talents
who were to move to the final stage were to be picked. 12 multi talented
models and 8 performing artistes were selected from a wealth of talents
that pervaded the auditions to move to the last day of the auditions.
The next day, youths came out in their thousands to watch the final
auditions. Even present at the event were families and friends of the
contestants who made it to the final rounds. The atmosphere was tense as
the judges called out the final fantastic four multi talented models and
one performing artiste. However, that was not the end of it. Something
that has never happened before in any of the other cities happened that
day. A second performing artiste – a beat boxer – was picked. According
to the judges, the difference between the Calabar talents and other
talents from other cities, was that Calabar youths had perfected their
talents and turned it into a skill.
At the end of the auditions, we had our four multi talented models and
two performing artistes who would be moving with us to Lagos to the boot
camp and the grand finale respectively.
We really can’t wait!!!! Join us in Lagos where every multi talented
model picked at the final stage would be get to join the Bootcamp at the
Federal Palace Hotel and Casino. The performing talent selected would
get the once in a lifetime opportunity to be on stage in front of
corporate Nigeria and Lagos creme de la creme at the grand finale at the
Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island on September 10th 2017.
Dare2Dream is a youth empowerment program targeted at female models,
performing talents and fashion enthusiasts.
